Flood warning: Rock River at Lake Koshkonong

Rising Ohio River makes travel difficult in some Louisville neighborhoods

Overall, more than 250 river gauges reported levels above flood stage from the Great Lakes to Texas.

The river is expected to crest at 1 p.m. Monday at 36 feet.

Roughly 70 rivers were in flood stage as of midday Monday in the central United States of America, the National Weather Service said.

Following a week of rainfall, flooding and tornadic activity, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky saw over the weekend what havoc a 60-foot Ohio River surge can cause.

The National Weather Service has extended flood warnings for the St. Joseph River above Newville and the North Branch Elkhart River at Cosperville.

Areas of northern and central West Virginia received about 3/4 of an inch to one inch of rain.

Ohio Governor John Kasich declared a state of emergency in 17 counties along the Ohio River due to high water and storm damage.

The city wants everyone to be on high alert as the rain starts falling Sunday night so they can be prepared to leave if the flooding gets serious.

"What we've seen here is the wettest February in history in Jefferson County and so the flood protection systems and the inland drainage systems are very vital to make sure that we are keeping our community safe", Parrott said.

Lou Vargo, Wheeling-Ohio County Emergency Management Agency director, said there was no creek flooding in Wheeling or Ohio County Sunday. It's our highest river level since the significant flooding we saw in early March 1997.

Parker said there still was the possibility of creek flooding with heavy rain, but the river was not expected to be the problem originally expected. "The weather can change on you".

Classes have been canceled on Monday, Feb. 26 at the Ohio University main campus in anticipation of severe weather, the school said Friday. "That won't affect anything". While an unprotected area of the city was hit by flooding, the decision to get that flood wall up before the river crested almost a week ago saved the city and its residents a lot of misery.

"If you had water before, just be prepared".
